Conservation area appraisal and management strategies

Conservation area appraisals and management strategies help guide us in deciding on the types of alterations and developments that are acceptable in our designated conservation areas.

The information below provides further details about what these documents are, how they are used and what information they contain.

What are conservation area appraisals and management strategies and how are they used?

Conservation area appraisals and management strategies define the special character of a conservation area and set out our approach for its preservation and enhancement. Generally, they include:

  • an appraisal of the special character of the area
  • lists of buildings which make a positive contribution to the character and appearance of the area
  • lists of sites that have a negative impact on the conservation area or where an opportunity may exist for improvement of the area by redevelopment of a building or site
  • management strategies which set out our policies and procedures for managing, monitoring and enforcing change in the area

Not all documents have management strategies but as older statements are reviewed we will draft them to accompany each appraisal document.

These documents are useful to residents, community groups, businesses, developers and their professional advisers in preparing planning applications for proposed developments within conservation areas. We use these documents during the process of assessing planning applications and also when scheduling highway maintenance and public realm improvement works.
